There is a lot to gain from investing in a pool for your home. One way to maximise the benefits of your pool is by installing a pool heating system. This opens your pool for use almost anytime of the year and for multiple purposes.
One of the things you can do in your pool is hydrotherapy. Hydrotherapy or aquatic exercise is a form of physical therapy that utilises movements in water to improve health and overall well-being. Hydrotherapy can be external which includes immersing the body in water or internal which includes irrigation treatments. It is often used by athletes to help maintain their fitness.
Here are five benefits of doing hydrotherapy at home:
Health Benefits of Hydrotherapy
Water temperature plays a big role in hydrotherapy. Cool water compresses blood vessels to help reduce inflammation, while hot water dilates blood vessels to help reduce tension. Contrast hydrotherapy is a form of hydrotherapy where the patient alternates between cool and hot water to improve blood circulation. You can consult your doctor or therapist to create a hydrotherapy program for you.
Some specific health benefits of hydrotherapy include:
- Alleviates stress and pain
- Rehabilitate injured muscles
- Helps detoxify the body
- Boosts the immune system
Accessible All Year Round
The value of being able to do hydrotherapy at home is the exclusivity and accessibility. Having your own pool means that you can have hydrotherapy treatment in private and at your convenience. Heating pools can make swimming even in winter, comfortable, so you can do hydrotherapy regardless of the season.
With the resources and facility made accessible all year round, initiating self-improvement and seeing the results can boost morale. If you are experiencing some form of physical discomfort, taking a dip in the pool can help to ease your condition. Taking matters into your own hands and achieving the results that you want will inspire you to continue to improve.
Hydrotherapy at home can be done with family and friends instead of just being with your therapist. This makes it an even better interactive experience. You can also get creative with your hydrotherapy by using items like balls, kickboards and floats or even underwater technology. This makes your treatment seem more like a vacation rather than rehabilitation.
Ideally, rehabilitation should be done consistently to get the best results. However, spa and rehabilitation treatment costs can quickly accumulate before you can achieve the best results. Save on the cost of paying for continuous spa and rehabilitation treatments by doing hydrotherapy at home and at your own pace.
